Shadows in the Mind's Eye Book Tour and Giveaway

Charlotte Anne Mattas longs to turn back the clock. Before her husband, Sam, went to serve his country in the war, he was the man everyone could rely on—responsible, intelligent, and loving. But the person who’s come back to their family farm is very different from the protector Annie remembers. Sam’s experience in the Pacific theater has left him broken in ways no one can understand—but that everyone is learning to fear.

Tongues start wagging after Sam nearly kills his own brother. Now when he claims to have seen men on the mountain when no one else has seen them, Annie isn’t the only one questioning his sanity and her safety. If there were criminals haunting the hills, there should be evidence beyond his claims. Is he really seeing what he says, or is his war-tortured mind conjuring ghosts?

Annie desperately wants to believe her husband. But between his irrational choices and his nightmares leaking into the daytime, she’s terrified he’s going mad. Can she trust God to heal Sam’s mental wounds—or will sticking by him mean keeping her marriage at the cost of her own life?


This one was amazing. Charlotte Anne and Sam have a long journey ahead of them. He returns from war a little broken and bruised. Annie has been leaning on Sam's friend, Doc who wasn't able to go to war due to disabilities left over from Polio. Even though the war is over, there are new battles for this family in Arkansas. Sam is left not knowing who to trust and Annie is not sure she can trust Sam due to his battle fatigue.

Written from Annie and Sam's perspectives, this one left me guessing at each twist and turn. The end will have you reeling from the reveals.

I love a tale that will mess with my mind and not give it all away. This one succeeded in keeping me guessing. Add in the Christian faith message and message of healing and you have a nearly perfect story. Sam and Annie are a flawed couple trying to come together again after he returns from WWII. Sam's mother adds the perfect guidance.

Annie's dad the Judge, runs the town and the two are set on avoiding owing him. However, all is not as it seems in the Arkansas town.

I was held captive until the end.


The book giveaway will end one week after the tour.

The prize pack includes:

- A copy of Shadows in the Mind's Eye,

- A "Light speaks through the broken places" t-shirt also inspired by the book.
